When dictators destroy democracies they never have the authority to do so, but they do so anyway, and I have little confidence Trump's judges on the Supreme Court will do the right thing, much less the US  Senate. So who's going to stop him?


 John K Clark



The constitution will stop him.  But that isn’t necessary, as he didn’t actually start anything.  An executive order doesn’t apply to FaceBook or Twitter: they don’t work for the government.


John aren’t you glad we have a constitution?
